ULTIMATE #MSWL please someone give me an #ownvoices #Hmong #YA novel about immigration and the #SecretWar. We need this story, especially for teens. No more hidden history.

#BookExpo session on the future of publishing has me thinking about the importance of representing the people where you live. So on that note: #YA #MSWL featuring Hmong characters and info on the Secret War and ensuing refugee movement. Plus if it’s in the Twin Cities!

We got any fashionistas out there? @TaherehMafi’s A Very Large Expanse of Sea has my #MSWL pining for a #YA novel where fashion—and the liberation of clothing autonomy—unites unlikely friends.

#MSWL: Anyone out there have a YA manuscript with some fencing? I’ve got a hankering for a little foil work.

#MSWL the serious girl power plus honest emotional impact of said power found in @elockhart’s The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks 🙌🏼 Seriously, I wish I could go back to fifteen (yeah . . . let that sink in) just so I could read Frankie’s saga and find myself in it.

#MSWL I want to see more YA #ownvoices stories including the mythology of the Americas. I love me some Greek/Egyptian/Nordic retellings, but I'm looking for something closer to home.

#MSWL a bunch of teens who discover they have super powers but just use them to do normal every day stuff. Controlling the weather for optimum spring break rays. Flying to school to save on gas.

2019 #MSWL: let’s get some YA with teens who are obsessed with strange things. Think The Thing About Jellyfish. I wanna learn some weird stuff.
